Moving to SF in March from Salt Lake city, company in Presidio SF and will be moving to Downtown SF in next 6 months. Planning to rent 1 bedroom 1 bath, budget between 2.5K-3.2K. I have a car also, some friends have suggested to sell the car and rely on public transportation.
Which areas will be safe and worth looking into?
I saw Bay view, Daly city and even Oakland has some cheap options. I have heard Oakland has safety issues, any comments on that?
My primary goal is to find something which falls in my range, safe and commute time is not too long. Open to dispose car and use public transport, if that's the common consensus.
Edit: Just saw the presidio bit, that’s gonna make commute difficult regardless. You might try inner/outer Richmond (district in SF, not the city in east bay) in that case.
